From the awareness of stirring of faith and curiosity within one's heart,
through all those stages of asking and seeking,
through beginning involvement with Roman Catholic people,
through hearing the Gospel proclaimed and by faithful reflection and prayer on this Word of God,
through study and discussion about the Catholic experience,
through doubts and hesitations,
through discernment of God's call for them as individuals,
through the steps of commitment,
through the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist)
to a life of faith, love, and justice lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world.
